Welcome to CSC324! In this course, you'll learn about programming paradigms that are quite different from the imperative approach you've seen in other courses. We'll study Racket and Haskell, two functional programming languages, and compare and contrast these languages with languages with which you're already familiar (Python and Java). In addition, we will be defining our own programming languages and programming language features. Why? We want to help you go beyond any particular programming language, and understand core conceptual differences between languages. We think this will make you a better programmer.
All announcements will be made on Quercus.

Please include "CSC324" in your email subject.
Lisa: Mondays 12pm-2pm, DH3078 and by appointment
Hassan: Tuesdays 1:30pm-3pm, Room CC2110
There will be additional office hours near assignment deadlines and tests.
We will not be using a textbook for the course. Instead, we will use the CSC324 Coursepack written by Prof. David Liu from the St. George campus. We will follow the notes closely for the majority of the course, but our treatment of logic programming will differ. Additional notes will be posted online.
This is the planned schedule for the term. The lecture content, labs, and homeworks are subject to change.
